3D Aerial Video

For the past couple weeks I’ve been helping a buddy test his custom built 3D gimbal, It was built to carry two Panasonic 4k cameras. We had one major problem, and that was vibrations in the video. We were testing the video on the DJI S1000. There were two major problems, first problem was the folding props on the S1000. These props were impossible to get perfectly balanced and vibrations could be seen on the occasion on the booms of the helicopter. But the problem I noticed most was the custom gimbal. The settings were impossible to get dialed it. When I would mount the cameras to my Freefly Systems MoVI M5 there were no issues. Its for reasons like this I always go with the premium option of the MoVI at Helivate Films. It may cost extra but it has proven itself time and time again over the past year.

    Zac Eskelsen, Owner of Helivate Films kills it!!!! He took our production level to the skies with moving dynamic imagery. It’s always great to have people on your team willing to push the envelope and take chances to create that amazing shot, Zac is that person. Super easy going, wonderful to work with and an amazing pilot. I would recommend him to anyone for their professional aerial needs. - Mike Jones.

    Zac saved my bacon. We were nearly to our location in Moab (4 hours away) when our aerial cinematographer had to turn back with a family emergency. Called Zac. Not only was he very accommodating with our immediate schedule, but he quickly got the concept and was able to capture images that enhanced the cinematic storytelling of our show. So easy to work with. And talented too. Thanks Zac.

    I found my experience with Zac Eskelsen and Helivate Films to be outstanding in every way. Not only can they “deliver the goods” when it comes to aerial photography, they were professional to work with, prompt at responding to our questions, and attentive to our needs. I would highly recommend Helivate.
